CHARLOTTE, N.C. – Doctors and nurses in the emergency room are on the front lines, working to save people from car crashes, gunshots and drug overdoses. NBC Charlotte was granted unprecedented access to a local emergency room to experience a day in the life of these real-world heroes as they battle the problem the opioid crisis is creating for so many young people. Kristen Steinhaus sees it all. Every day, night and on holidays. “After I came out here, we received a patient that arrived.
CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Students in middle school and high school across the North Carolina Piedmont are addicted to powerful drugs. So much so that school resource officers said they've caught them getting high in class with their teacher in the room. "Don't be afraid to search the room or search their backpack," said one school resource officer. Don't think it's happening in your kids' school? Think again, say those on the front lines.
CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Chances are, you're likely to have received a postcard in the mail saying the person sending it needs to "urgently speak to you." There's a new one that's making its way around Charlotte that's caught the attention of the Better Business Bureau. The mailer provides a phone number, telling its recipient this is the "third notice" they've received. The return address on the back of the card is a post office in northwest Charlotte, not a business.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
